FREE IRAN SOLIDARITY MARCH: IN SOLIDARITY WITH IRANIAN RESISTANCE & PEOPLE’S UPRISING

With the rise of social unrest and discontent within Iran and with the escalation of the regime’s rift with the international community, the Iranian diaspora and communities across Europe and the US will be holding rallies in major capitols to voice their support for the Iranian resistance and call for a firm policy in face of the ruling theocracy baring the message that it is due time to recognize the Iranian people’s inalienable right to resist in face of the religious fascism ruling Iran.

In solidarity with nationwide protests and unrest in the past year, the events will be in form of rallies, representing the out-pour of support for the Iranian people in their struggle for freedom and democracy, with one joint message:

Solidarity with the Iranian Resistance & People’s Uprising

 Join us in the Solidarity March for a Free Iran

Brussels – June 15th

On June 15th Brussels, the European Capital will be the host of the Free Iran Rally, calling on the European Union and member states not to invest their hope in a regime on the verge of collapse and recognize the will of the Iranian people and their aspirations for the overthrow of the regime and a free Iran.

Washington D.C. – June 21st

Iranian-Americans will assemble from across the US in Washington, DC in welcoming a firm stance and decisive policy taken up by the US government in face of the Iranian regime putting an end to the policy of appeasement. Thousands will join the rally to voice their support for the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) as the sole viable democratic alternative to the mullahs’ rule. While shedding light and denouncing the Iranian regime’s terrorist plots and the defamation and demonetization campaign targeting the Iranian resistance, in effort to steer the adoption of a firm and decisive policy against this regime.

Berlin – July 6

The German capital, Berlin will be host to the rally of thousands of freedom loving Iranians, supporters of a free Iran.

While voicing support for the Iranian resistance, participants will raise concerns on the dire human rights situation in Iran, the plight of thousands of political prisoners, the violation of civil liberties and draw attention to the plight of a nation which has been plundered by the ruling mullahs and their apparatus. Iranian communities throughout Germany will once more reiterate that the future of Iran must be decided by the people of Iran, in such critical times it is necessary to remind the international community that there is only one solution to the Iran puzzle, and that is to support the Iranian people and their resistance to bring about democratic change. There is an alternative to foreign intervention and the policy of appeasement, and that is the third option set forth by Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the NCRI

Stockholm- July 20th

On July 20th Iranians from across Scandinavia will come together in one voice to reiterate the Iranian people’s aspirations for a free Iran, and emphasize that the solution to the Iran dilemma is neither war nor appeasement, but to support and recognize .the Iranian people and their legitimate resistance in face of tyranny

London- July 27th

On July 27th Anglo-Iranians will come together in London to call for a firm policy vis-à-vis the Iranian regime. At a time where the Iranian regime continues to increase it’s meddling in the region and terror plots in Europe while increasing suppression inside the country in hopes of preventing its final downfall, it is dire that the international community stand by the Iranian people.

In recent months, in effort to curb rising unrest the regime has incepted Raisi, renowned for his role in the 1988 massacre as part of the death committees, as the new Chief Justice, which has led to a new wave of suppression and a sharp increase in harsh sentences including a executions, long-term sentences and torture.

Iranians will once more gather to draw the attention of the international community to the human rights situation in Iran.

The Free Iran Rallies in major capitals is taking place at a time where the Iranian regime is facing one of the most critical junctures it has faced in decades; with the designation of the IRGC on the US terror list, ongoing social unrests throughout the nation, and the collapse of Iran’s economy with the new wave of sanctions, particularly the embargo on Iran’s oil and petrochemical exports. These developments have led to a surge in the immense issues the Iranian regime has come face to face with, which has also led to an evident rise in defection in the hierarchy of the IRGC and its proxies.

In Iran’s modern history, June has come to represent the month of resistance in face of tyranny. Free Iran rallies will also commemorate June 20, the day of Martyrs and Political Prisoners in Iran. On June 20, 1981, Khomeini opened fire on the peaceful protest of over 500,000 supporters of the MEK in Tehran, taking away the last drops of freedom available in Iran’s society after the revolution. Hundreds were killed on the spot by the IRGC and thousands sent to the gallows that night, some without even being identified or their names being known, their images were aired on national television asking their parents to come and identify their bodies, the reign of terror had begun. Rallies and gathering which will be held in other major capitals will be announced here on Iran Freedom as they become available to the public.

Our Messsage:

Regime Change in Iran is inevitable
It is high time for the international community to recognize the desire of the Iranian people for regime change by the people of Iran.
It is time for all governments to stand with peace and take all necessary measures to evict the Iranian regime from the region, and not allow the regime to spread its terror by blacklisting the MOIS .

Free Iran
